New!

What does Paul mean when he says to put on the new man?… ‘…put on the new man, which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness.” When a person is born again they can say with Paul… ‘I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me:Continue reading “New!”

Resist…

A friend mentioned a verse yesterday when we were talking about fighting the devil… ‘Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.’ Then when I opened my Bible this morning, there it was, following on from a verse I mentioned in my post yesterday. (He giveth more grace!) Little did I know that withinContinue reading “Resist…”

The Battle is not Yours but God’s.

Are you a fixer? If there’s a problem do you want to just get on and sort it out, fight for what you think is right or do what you can to make sure things go your way?…. Friends, if we know Jesus as our Saviour and are looking to Him, then we don’t need to fight alone, even when we don’t feel God’s presence, He still goes with us…

How Can My Life Glorify God?

How can my life glorify God? What do I do to live a life that glorifies God? Have you ever asked yourself that question? It’s one I’ve often thought about and prayed over. My post is a little different today as these are all the thoughts that came tumbling into my mind as I wasContinue reading “How Can My Life Glorify God?”

The Battle is the Lord’s…

David fought a lion, a bear and a giant and he won every time. It all sounds rather extreme until you add God into the equation. David didn’t fight alone and neither do you child of God. We may live in peace where we live but for the Christian there’s a constant war being waged.Continue reading “The Battle is the Lord’s…”

His Banner Over Me Was Love…

I randomly opened my Bible this morning and the first words my eyes fell on were… ‘He brought me to the banqueting house, and his banner over me was love.’ What a beautiful truth to look at on Valentine’s day friends! This verse is so well known but I wanted to dig a little deeperContinue reading “His Banner Over Me Was Love…”

Fullness of Joy…

Thou wilt shew me the path of life: in thy presence is fulness of joy; at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore. Ps 16:11 I decided to really dig into the Hebrew for this verse which is actually only nine Hebrew words, each word being translated into a phrase in English. I’ll putContinue reading “Fullness of Joy…”

What is Your Why?

What is our why? Why do we do what we do? There’s an incident recorded that happened soon after the miracles of the loaves and fishes where Jesus said this… ‘Take heed and beware of the leaven of the Pharisees and of the Sadducees.’ The disciple thought Jesus said this because they’d only brought oneContinue reading “What is Your Why?”

Thoughts Whirling Around at a Dizzying Rate?…

Stressed? Anxious? Busy? As I was sitting with my Bible this morning, instead of what I initially thought I was to share today, I was led to the well known account of Martha and Mary. Most of us will know this story well, Mary sits at Jesus feet listening to Him while Martha is busyContinue reading “Thoughts Whirling Around at a Dizzying Rate?…”

What are We Longing For?

I’ve just come to the end of looking at John’s first epistle with a group of friends and there’s one verse, right at the end that is really searching me and I felt led to share my thoughts. There’s a part of me that always wants to post just positive things but we so needContinue reading “What are We Longing For?”
